Some swearing no sex

It’s Marvel so of course there’s swearing. The fight scenes aren’t that bad. No sex (or speak of porn like in Spiderman). I think most kids that have watched the rest of the Marvel movies will enjoy it! Previewed it before our boys saw it and thought it was well made. Lots of action, plenty of plot line but also lots of funny parts. My oldest said it’s his new favorite marvel movie and looks forward to November when it’s out on Disney+. There is a scene where a women dies by getting beat beat up, which is sad, but it pans away and doesn’t show anything. Also a scene where a man beats up a room full of people in a fit of rage. There’s LOTS of fighting so if you’re not into that, you won’t like it.
